Negative Reviews

It's hard to surf the net

The Wi-Fi at Briery Wood Country House is notoriously patchy to the extent that it is unusable in certain parts of the hotel You probably won't be able to access it in your room and you'll even have trouble getting online in many of the common areas If you are successful in logging on, you'll find it keeps dropping out.

The floors are a little dated

Areas of the carpets are pretty worn and could do with replacing Some of the stair carpets are even covered in duct tape.

The bar is set high

The drink prices might make your eyes water a little Expect to pay handsomely for both alcoholic and soft beverages Similarly, the evening meal isn't cheap, so make sure you consider this when budgeting for your stay.
